IIT Roorkee to readmit expelled students

IIT Roorkee to readmit expelled students
IIT Roorkee has decided to grant conditional readmission to all 71 students who were expelled by the premier institute for underperformance last month.

The decision to grant readmission to the expelled students with some stringent pre-conditions was taken last night by the institute's senate, the Dean of Students Welfare D K Nauriyal told PTI over phone from Roorkee.

"Taking a lenient view, the senate after considering all aspects of the situation especially the future of the students took the decision," the Dean said.

The conditions for readmission put forward by the Senate include starting afresh from the first semester, scoring at least five Cumulative Grade Points Average (CGPA) or more in both first and second semester exams, not failing in any of the subjects and 75 per cent attendance in all subjects, Nauriyal added.

The relief comes to students nearly a month after their expulsion from the institute during which some of them had approached the Uttarakhand High Court for a reprieve but to no avail.

Initially, 73 students were expelled by the institute for scoring less than five CGPA in their first and second semester B Tech exams, making it the first IIT in the country to resort to expulsions on such a wide scale.

However, two of them were taken back after some discrepancies were detected in their expulsion, bringing down the number of expelled students to 71, Nauriyal said.
